A late announcement: Our little geisha, Hina Penelope, has arrived!

On [name]March[/name] 13th, our second daughter was born!

We decided on a Japanese name to match her sister’s and honor my husband’s Japanese culture, and couldn’t be happier!

Hina [name]Penelope[/name] was born healthy and beautiful.

Hina means “sunshine”, and it fits our happy little girl so perfectly.
We chose [name]Penelope[/name] after a great aunt of mine who recently passed away.

[name]Welcome[/name] to the world, little Hina :)!
Mama, Papa, and your big sister Sachi [name]Elizabeth[/name] love you so much!

Congrats on your baby. Never come across Hina before, but it sounds nice with [name]Penelope[/name].

Congrats on the birth of your second daughter, Hina [name]Penelope[/name]. Sachi and Hina are a lovely Japanese-inspired duo! :slight_smile:

Congratulations I think it was a good idea to ‘match’ with Sachi’s name. I am not sure how you say Hina though.


Congratulations! Sachi and Hina work together really well, and Hina [name]Penelope[/name] is a lovely combo.

All the best!

It’s pronounced hee-nah :). Like [name]Mina[/name] but with an H.

Thank you everyone!
